Comedy sequels are not uncommon, but trilogies are rare. And yet, 'The Hangover Part III,' the third and presumably final installment in Todd Phillips’ epic saga of four friends who can’t seem to keep themselves sober (or even conscious) when they come together, seems oddly natural given the enormous appeal of its ensemble cast. The film brings Wolf Pack members Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug full circle, returning them to Vegas older and marginally wiser as they try to track down the potty-mouthed Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) for another gangster (John Goodman) who claims that he stole $21 million in gold bars from him during their first drugged-out stint in Sin City.
We spoke with stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace, where the original and final chapters were filmed about wrapping up the most successful comedy series in movie history. In addition to offering their thoughts about the franchise’s trajectory, they reflected on the star-making experience of playing these now-iconic roles, and offered a few suggestions about how to follow up their collective success with reunion films – in new styles and other genres, no less.

'The Hangover Part III' is due out in a week, and the one thing the trailers and posters have hammered home is that this is the final chapter of the series. The movie, which stars Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong, is promising closure and this latest (likely final) NSFW trailer plays up that this is the end.
The Wolfpack gang take a long, hard look at themselves and where their journey has taken them in this featurette for 'The Hangover Part 3.'
Just yesterday we learned that 'Arrested Development' season 4 had yet to reveal all of its guest stars, even as we approach the May 26 debut of all 15 Netflix episodes, but it seems another major name has slipped out of the bag. 'The Office' and 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms will put in an appearance for 'Arrested Development's' return, and you don't have to wait to see it!
After an early marketing campaign that did everything in its power to hide plot details, 'The Hangover Part 3' has started revealing its secrets at a rapid-fire pace. First, there was the recent trailer that finally let us in on the plot of the film. Now, we have the first clip, which sheds some light on what appears to be the film's main conflict.
It looks like Ed Helms and Christina Applegate won't be taking that 'Vacation' they've been planning anytime soon. New Line has delayed the reboot, citing "creative differences."
Every 'The Hangover 3' trailer and TV spot so far has sold chaos and only chaos, so it's refreshing that the new (and possibly final) trailer for the trilogy capper lets us know what the movie is actually about. Unlike 'The Hangover Part II,' this is no carbon copy remake of the first film -- it couldn't look more different than what we've seen before.
Yesterday, a new 'The Hangover Part 3' poster spotlighting John Goodman's mysterious character arrived. Well, it looks like it was the first in a series. Now, a new character poster has popped up online showcasing one of the trilogy's most divisive characters: Ken Jeong's Mr. Chow.
If there's one thing the first TV spot for 'The Hangover Part 3' is selling, it's total unbridled chaos. Like the previous trailer, there is no plot to speak of, just glimpses of things spiraling out of control in dangerous and horrifying (hilarious?) ways. Check it our for yourself below.
This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
